ABOUT DR. BREWER
Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many preventable heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. While there, he went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has close to 1,000 primary care/prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, and stroke prevention clinic.
At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack, stroke, and cognitive decline. We serve patients who have already experienced an event as well as those who have not developed a diagnosis or event. Dr. Brewer provides services via telemedicine or in person if you’re in the Lexington, KY area. We find a lot of undiagnosed Pre-Diabetes or Insulin Resistance. Treating unrecognized risk factors like Pre-Diabetes allows reduction of risk and prevention of disease.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
The TAME study was finally funded. Targeting Aging with Metformin aims to slow the aging process. It has been developed and approved by the National Institute of Aging and the FDA. The principal investigator, Nir Barzilai, is excited about changing the paradigm and getting big PHARMA to actually fund research for drugs for aging. Currently, PHARMA only funds research for drugs for disease – not anti-aging. What is it about getting older that causes heart disease, kidney disease, cancer, dementia and all these other problems of aging?
Let’s put the “splitters” (specialists like cardiologists, nephrologists, neurologists, etc) out of business. How? By stopping the cellular components of the aging process. That’s where metformin comes in. It helps slow down the major biochemical challenge of aging: glucose metabolism. Enzymes like insulin membrane receptors, mTOR, ampk, and SIRT1 are implicated. And they are positively impacted by metformin. Metformin is cheap ( free at many pharmacies now). It’s been used for decades. It’s popular ( the #1 oral drug for early type 2 diabetes). And it’s safer than you think. Some medical sites ( like Mayo) still incorrectly list lactic acidosis as a problem with metformin. But look up the multiple Cochrane analyses on this.
